If you want to step into your Greatness… Sacred Success by Barbara Stanny
I'm listening to this book right now every time I go to the gym, and I keep needing to put down the weights to take notes. Barbara Stanny is a financial expert for women and a best-selling author who lost nearly everything and needed a break. Connection with spirit and universal truth became her guiding light. In this beautiful book, she connects spirituality with success to help you discover and achieve your Greatness. She pulls a lot from A Course in Miracles, Rumi, and Ghandi. Fear causes doubt and frantic busy-ness. Greatness is your soul's purpose. Let's read it together.

If you want a FUN read to re-ignite joy and pleasure in your romantic life, especially with men…. Mama Gena's Owner's and Operator's Guide to Men by Regena Thomashauer
The title of this book rubbed me the wrong way at first. I don't own or operate my husband. And, I love Mama Gena so I decided to read it and am having so much fun with this book! It's making me laugh out loud, connect with my desires in the bedroom and giving me tools to improve my sex life and my marriage. Mama Gena is brilliant with men and wise about the sacredness of women. She is unabashed in her views that every woman is a Goddess and unapologetic in her language. I learn as much about how to be unapologetic and speak my voice from witnessing her do so, as I do from the book content itself. I'm reading this one by the pool every day and at night for a few minutes. Let's read it together and share our favorite bits!
I hope you have a great summer reading these or other favorites. Let me know how you like these and enjoy your beautiful days!
